If one read the latest iTunes agreement, one would know that, by consenting, one gives Apple the right to collect “real-time geographic location” information on devices to “provide and improve location-based products and services.”
iPodNN reports that Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, federal justice minister of Germany, has called on California-based Apple, Inc. to make the details of its handheld location data collection public.
Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger is concerned that Apple could be creating personality profiles of users. She asserts that the public should be informed of the nature of data being collected by Apple as well as how it is being used.
